Having previously used Animoto, I found it relatively easy to create a slide show from pictures of student activity in the NV Library. The hardest part of this project was remembering to take pictures. I elected to use music provided by Animoto (primarily to avoid copyright issues).
Another tool that would be somewhat similar to Animoto is Glogster. Glogster allows one to create a ‘poster’ where pictures, videos and text can be posted.
Since I’ve never used Slideshare, I elected to also investigate it. I uploaded two powerpoints used in a public meeting to discuss school consolidation. This first is from a presentation by Donna Whiteman.
The second presentation was used by Superintendent Brian Harris for the board’s presentation.
